The Tierra


I had lunch with a friend the other day and we were talking about environmental issues. She turned out to be the “not-so-concerned” citizen and her views in fact got me thinking – we need all the education and help we can get. From the government, scientists, schools, media, anybody, who is even slightly worried about the future of the planet.
Baba Dioum once said that “in the end we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught”.
And so I praise every new source out there that might help my “not-so-concerned” friend and billions of other “not-so concerned” people to realize that we need to act and act fast.
The Tierra is a new site, which focuses on environmental issues, including, but not limited to renewable energy, water conservation, recycling and transportation solutions. It also attempts to provide reviews of environmentally-friendly items.
It is a community site and if you have anything to say, please help out and write a review or an article.
Meanwhile I’ll be scouting for other educational resources and pester my friends and family until they start to care.
